Resilience Interim Report

The interim report from the resilience workshop is now available to download. The workshop looked at four different areas: Understanding the diversity of users on the network and their needs; The role of information and communication in managing disruptions; The effectiveness of actions to adapt transport and non-transport services; and Understanding the social and economic impacts of such events. Key findings were clustered into six main areas including coordination, information, behavioural insights and economic impacts

Travel Behaviour Response to Major Transport System Disruptions: Implications for Smarter Resilience Planning

This briefing paper by Greg, Jeremy, Jillian and Iain presents evidence collected from new studies of behavioural adaptation during disruptive events and uses this to identify four areas for action to improve how we plan for resilience and how we assess the worth of different types of investment strategy: 1.The development of Smart Resilience Strategies – which are a combination of transport and non-transport responses which work together to minimize the impacts of temporary infrastructure loss; 2.Measures to improve the usefulness, impact and co-ordination of communications with the public and businesses during disruptions, enabling social adaptation and reducing time wasted in unnecessarily perilous and extended journeys; 3.A continued programme of developing the capacity of travellers and businesses to adapt to different events through greater multi-modality and an increase in smart and flexible working practices; and 4.A reassessment of the approach to understanding the economic impacts of disruptive events which extends well beyond the apparent reductions in flows and increases in journey times observed on the networks and captures the societal and economic impacts in a more holistic way.
